Phone Covers by Fi Bourke Fashion

IMG_5643

As you can see from the picture below I am obsessed with covers for my phone! I treat them like an accessory and change them everyday to match different outfits and colours.
So you can imagine my excitement when the fabulous Fionnuala Bourke, founder of Fi Bourke Fashion and phone cover designer extraordinaire told me that she would like to design a special cover just for me.
She chose this stunning design with spikes, studs, chains and diamante and even initialled it with SC for "The Sequin Cinderella". She could not have chosen a better combination to sum up my style and I absolutely love it.
Fi can design any cover in any style that her clients require, she has even designed for celebrities, my favourite to date being her cover for Rylan from X Factor (featured below).
This month one of Ireland's top fashion magazines did a write up about her wonderful creations and I was delighted to see that my cover was one of the chosen ones to be shown in the magazine.
So if you have a precious phone in need of a new wardrobe check out Fi's designs at the details below. Your phone will thank you for it!

City of Culture's Top Model

IMG_5580

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the final of the "City Of Cultures Top Model" competition in St Columb's Hall, Derry/Londonderry.
Eleven beautiful girls battled to win the coveted title as Derry/Londonderry embarks on a very exciting year. The winner would become the face of the City of Culture and also receive a host of fantastic prizes including a cheque for a whopping £3000.
Michael Doherty entertained the audience with his witty charm as host and his vocal talents, singing a few numbers throughout the show, whilst the finalists modelled beautiful clothing from shops in the Richmond Centre, who were the main sponsors of the event.
I did not envy the judges as hey had an incredibly difficult task choosing between such stunning, charismatic girls but in the end they made the right decision.
Shannon Watson was a very worthy 2nd runner up, followed closely by Joanna Cooper who lit up the catwalk with her fun and flirtatious personality. However there could only be one winner and that was the fierce and fabulous Miss Nerissa Moore.
I decided to wear a simple summery dress to the show paired up with a handbag in similar colours from Guess and added just a little bling with emerald coloured earrings from the Anna Dello Russo collection for H&M.
Huge congratulations to all at Richmond Centre, Angel Models & Bleach Hairdressing for organising such an amazing event and I'd like to say thanks to Donna Anderson who kindly gave me the tickets.

Ladylike School Catwalk Competition

Modelling 1

As a little girl I always dreamed of walking down a catwalk, modelling the latest fashions, having photographers snap the wonderful outfits I adorned and audiences admiring the beautiful clothes I had on display. In fact I think it is a dream that most little girls have and now thanks to the Ladylike School (in association with Ticket Friend) one lucky competition winner will receive 8 catwalk classes and the chance to experience the dream of a lifetime.
Ladylike School are based in Dublin, Ireland and offer classes in modelling, acting, dancing and psychology. 
They pride themselves on helping girls discover their inner "star" quality and encouraging the traits that make them special. They inspire little girls to become young ladies in a fun and friendly environment and the winner of this amazing competition will get the opportunity to experience this first hand.
All you have to do to enter is LIKE the Ticketfriend facebook page (by clicking here) then follow the link to the competition by clicking here
Although not a typical 6ft tall, size zero model, I always had the desire to experience the thrill of the runway and I was lucky enough to get to try it out on many occasions. It lived up to every expectation I ever had and it is a buzz like no other I have experienced. As you can see from the pictures it is also a chance to get to try out some incredible outfits that you would otherwise never get the chance to wear.
This wonderful competition will make one lucky girls dream become reality so if you or the special girl in your life have always dreamed of strutting your stuff on the catwalk then make your way over to the competition page and get entering!
Best of luck ladies!

Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013 Preview

P1010905

Whilst most of you were wining and dining with loved ones this Valentines Day, I had a date with the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer'13 collection at the Merrion Hotel in Dublin.
As usual this collection fulfilled every expectation with a little something to suit every taste. 
From quirky checker board prints to fun and flirty florals with some classic designs thrown in for good measure, I was in absolute fashion heaven as I perused each luxurious item.
My favourites had to be the Ikat floral range, particularly the newly designed "Noé-ful" handbag in cerise pink, a cross between the Neverfull and the Noé. I also adored the "Damier Optic Culr GM" which is my Must-Have bag from the collection!
There was plenty on offer for the Man in your life with strong and classic work accessories, statement travel cases and perhaps the most eye-catching of all, the neon accessories, perfect for the summer sunshine! 
This year the Louis Vuitton catwalk show was simply incredible. I thought nothing could top the Autumn/Winter steam train extravaganza until I tuned into the spectacular moving escalator experience of Spring/Summer. I watched in awe as every new piece appeared and it was an honour to get an up close and personal look at some of these showstoppers this week.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Anna Reiter, Tom Meggle and to all at Louis Vuitton for once again inviting me to be a part of this amazing event.
Let me know which of the bags is your favourite!

"Ikat flowers"

This collection is bright and feminine, from subtle pastel colours to strong cerise pinks and beautiful rich blues, ideal for adding a touch of extravagance to any ensemble.

"The Noé"
The Noé is the second oldest Louis Vuitton, iconic daily handbag. First created in 1932 it has been a staple piece within the brand, yet every season gives this stunning bag a new lease of life.
Originally designed to carry champagne bottles this bag began its life in luxury and has continued on the same path ever since.
The Noé bag and the Petit Noé can be found in a "myriad of incarnations from Damier Azur to colourful Epi Leather - each time different yet still, somehow, the same"
The season there is a new kid on the block in the shape of the Noé BB, "irresistibly cute, unmistakeably contemporary" with its new, extra long shoulder strap, it is the ideal bag for the modern woman. 
"Noé, Petit Noé, Noé BB. The legend lives on.

"Damier Print"
This season the materials were different, using thousands of the tiniest sequins to create a metallic effect, using techniques such as "tuffetage" the leather goods were transformed into a whole new medium with stunning result.
This is one of the first seasons where the monogram did not take precedent! Spring/Summer'13 is all about the Damier print which took on a whole new lease of life in oversized checker board prints and stronger, brighter colours. A collection for any fashionista willing to make a statement and stand out from the crowd.
